 Bombings in and around Baghdad have claimed the lives of many civilians, only a day after the Iraqi capital witnessed at least 15 martyrs in blasts.

A bomb near a market in the northeastern Shia suburb of Husseiniyah injured four civilians.

In a separate incident, a bomb went off in the capital’s southeastern Shia-majority suburb of Nahrwan, killing two people and wounding 13 after nightfall.

Iraq’s overall security situation has worsened over the past few months as the IS terrorists, of whom many are foreign nationals, have taken control of some parts of the country’s northern and western regions.

According to the United Nations, more than 1,100 people were killed and over 1,800 others wounded in terror attacks across the violence-torn Arab state last month, making December 2014 the deadliest month since 2008.
